Re: why is it like this?!!!!!!!!!
You have automatic synchronization set up, and you will want to disable it (set up manual synchronization) in order to prevent this problem from occurring in the future.
Connect your Go Gear to the computer
Open Windows Media Player
Highlight the Sync Tab
Click on the little black arrow and pull down the drop down menu
Click on Set Up Sync
Uncheck the box that says "Automatically synchronzie the device..."

Open Windows Media Player 11
Right-click a song on your computer that you want to change and select "Advanced Tag Editor"
Change the Genre
Now, you must delete the version of your song off your GoGear (the ones without the genre), and then resync the newly-edited song using Windows Media Player.
It is slow and painful, but you cannot make these edits once the song is already loaded onto the GoGear. Also, you cannot simply sync the newly-edited songs onto the GoGear once you are finished with the edits, without first deleting the song off the GoGear, because the GoGear would otherwise think, "Hey, this song is already on here, I'm going to ignore you now!"
Insert mp3 player/usb into computer. Double-click on My Computer. Double-click on the icon of the Philips Go Gear. Delete ONLY the song files from the Music folder. Do not delete anything other than song files, or your mp3 player will become unusable.
Download the latest firmware upgrade for the device at www.usasupport.philips.com The firmware upgrade will delete all songs off the device Re-add the songs you would like It should work better the second time around
You will need to reformat the GoGear in Windows Media Player, but do a firmware upgrade first - open the Philips Device Manager and click on the Update tab. Then click the update button. After the firmware upgrade is done, open windows Media Player.
REFORMAT FOR WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER - Erases Everything: Connect your GoGear to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Philips Go Gear SAXXX" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything, and make your player properly read in Windows Media Player.

Before trying to delete the duplicate songs, first try re-synching your GoGear with Windows Media Player by connecting the GoGear to the computer and clicking on the Sync tab (if you haven't set up the GoGear for automatic sync).
You must use Windows Media Player to delete songs from the GoGear. With your GoGear connected to the PC, you want to highlight (single left click) the icon of the GoGear (or line that says Philips GoGear blah blah blah) on the left hand side of Windows Media Player 11 - this will ensure that you are deleting files from the GoGear itself, and not the computer. Once the GoGear line is highlighted, click on the "Songs" or "Album" folder underneath the GoGear line (NOT the "Songs" or "Album" folder underneath the "Library"). This will bring up a list of songs stored on the GoGear into the middle pane of Windows Media Player 11. Highlight (single left click) a song you want to delete and press the delete button on your computer's keyboard. windows USUALLY gives you a prompt asking if you really want to delete the files/they will be permanently removed from your (GoGear) device. Congratulations, you have just deleted songs from your GoGear! :-)
The HDD 1630 doesn't work particularly well with Windows Media Player 11, so you may have to follow Microsoft's instructions for rolling back to Windows Media Player 10.
Here's what happened: When you first synced your GoGear to Windows Media Player, you may have set up the automatic sync option. When this option is selected, Windows Media Player will add EVERY song, picture, etc from your Library on your computer to the GoGear. Now, every time you sync you device, it adds every new file from your computer into the GoGear automatically. It will even delete songs from your GoGear that were on there before. Go into Windows Media Player 11 with your GoGear connected to the computer (it will automatically sync and add new files one last time), move the mouse cursor over to the sync tab; a small black arrow will appear under the word "Sync"; click on the small black arrow and a dropdown menu will appear; select "Portable media device" from the dropdown menu, and another dropdown menu will appear; select "Set Up sync"; a window will appear with some information on your device - uncheck the box that says "Sync this device automatically"; click Finish; This will eliminate the problem of Windows always adding songs/files you don't want into your player.
